Maurikian Byzantines versus Arab Conquest

Effectively a rematch from our game on 16 December, this time Stephen took command of my Arabs and roughed up my Byzantines.

The Byzantines outscouted the Arabs.
I thought my three units of cavalry would be more than a match for the Arab fanatical foot.

We advanced, but Byzantine missile fire proved ineffective.

The Arabs won the initaitaive and charged and were just able to make contact.
One unit was beaten off but another took out the Byzantine CinC.
Oh dear!

The ability of the Byzantines to turn the Arab's left flank was way too late
as another Byzantive cavalry unit was routed.

The Arab foot put paid to the last Byzantine elite cavalry and game over.


  1. I'm always pleased to see the Byzantines in action! One can't win them all, of course.

    1. I'm always happy to get my figures on the table.
